The hot ticket these days is distilled water and Zerex Racing Super Coolant. Here's the thread that started the craze.
Knowledge is useless, itís what you do with it that counts.
I got the whole of my watercooling setup for just £70, I bought most off a friend for £40 (rad, pump, tubing etc) who got bored and the P4 Maze3 waterblock brand new on offer for £30.
The motherboard is an Asus P4S533 with a P4 2.0Ghz Northwood
The case is a Lian-Li PC-7.
It looks different to that now because:
1)Theres no air trapped in the tubes like in that pic.
2)The GeForce4 card is now watercooled with a DD Maze3 block
3)I've moved some stuff around
In answer to the PCI slot remark, why would I need more . . .
The PC is for gaming so I only have the GeForce4 card and an Audigy 2 card in there, the rest is onboard.
I have one 80Gb Maxtor drive and a DVD/CD/CDRW combo in there now, nothing more so there are still 3x5 1/4" bays empty and 2x3.5" bays free.
I have 2 other PC's networked to it for filling with firewire/video capture/raid/modem cards, hard disk arrays, CD Writers and all the other stuff.
EDIT:Water Wetter does exactly the same as the Zerex racing stuff, and is used a LOT by car and bike racing teams due to its ability to increase cooling efficiency, you can buy it in small bottles instead of huge crates like the Zerex stuff !

take a look at some real hardware mods:
Oops. I shoulda said distilled.
This is where my signature would go if I wasn't so lazy.
